Only recently, though, have the two started collaborating. This year, they released I'm Having Fun Now, a collaborative release put out under the name of Jenny and Johnny. You can hear that release in entirety in the clip above--played as heard on cassette tape, actually, in a player on top of a piano in the duo's shared Laurel Canyon home. It's a charming indie-pop listen--as can be expected from pretty much anything Lewis puts out.
And, tonight, the duo stops on by the Granada Theater to give Dallas fans a live taste of their musical offerings. Thanks to the folks at the Granada, we've got two free pairs of tickets to hand out to tonight's show. Jump with us to find out how to win them.
Want one of the pairs? Be among the first two people to email me, starting right now, with the words "Sweep the leg, Johnny" in the subject line, and you'll win. Good luck!
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winners!
